Not so long ago, the issue relating to the murder of Ibrahim Mohammed alias Macho Kaaka, a #FIXTHECOUNTRY advocate in Ejura in the Ashanti region by alleged body guards of the Ejura Sekyeredumasi Municipal Chief Executive, Mohammed Salisu Mamba over his activism on social escalated to the extent that the citizens of Ejura decided to match in the streets after the burial of Kaaka to demonstrate their displeasure.
And during the protest, some military men were invited to the scene to calm and disperse the crowd. But upon arrival, they fired shots into the crowd resulting in a lot of injuries including the deaths of some unarmed civilians in the process of running upon seeing the soldiers.
After many reactions from Ghanaians on the various media platforms, a committee was set up to investigate the matter. So the commander of the military who went to the place said to the committee that his men did not shoot into the crowd but the the people shot themselves. And the soldier who was squatting and pointing his gun into the crowd did not shoot anyone.
During the committee’s hearing, the brother of one of the dead victims, Abdul-Nasir Yussif told the committee that upon the arrival of the soldiers, there was no verbal confrontation but they started firing shots. And the soldier who was seen squatting on social media really shot in the crowd for about two times.
